Texas LNG Brownsville LLC, a controlled subsidiary of Glenfarne Group LLC developing a 4-million tonne/year LNG plant in the Port of Brownsville, Tex., and Enbridge Inc. agreed to expand the Valley Crossing pipeline (VCP) to deliver 720 MMcfd of natural gas to Texas LNG for a term of at least 20 years.
VCP consists of a 160-mile, 42- and 48-in. OD pipeline from Agua Dulce hub in Texas to the Port of Brownsville. A 10-mile lateral will be built to extend the pipeline to Texas LNG and compression added to the existing pipeline.
Agua Dulce interconnects with ten major gas pipeline systems transporting gas from the Permian and other basins with a total receipt capacity of more than 7 bcfd. Compression added at Agua Dulce will use electric motors, reducing CO2 emissions, according to Texas LNG.
Texas LNG expects to achieve final investment decision in 2022 and commercial operations in 2026.
